Top 10 images of 2018.

2018 saw the All Golds return to action by winning the West of England league undefeated and lifting the Harry Jepson trophy. Callum Merrett was a joy to photograph throughout the long summer months!

2018 started off well with the visit of Liverpool to Port Talbot Town's Victoria Road ground for a training session ahead of their match with Swansea City. Here Alberto Moreno undergoes a fitness test in front of the Burns Road mural as he returns from injury. 
Returning from LA the sun continued to shine across the country and at Jenner Park the South Wales FA were impressing in the UEFA Regions Cup qualifying round.

I've been lucky enough to photograph Gareth Bale a number of times this year but my favourite was at his intimate Q&A evening at his Elevens Bar & Grill. 

I couldn't even choose a top 10 images list from the LA trip alone but here is one of my favourites, Mexican fans next to the Welsh 'away' end as the two teams draw 0-0 at the Rose Bowl. 

A highlight of the year has been covering the Welsh men's senior team and here is Ryan Giggs facing the media ahead of the Spain friendly at the Principality Stadium. 

The year ended well by photographing Wayne Routledge's winner against Sheffield Wednesday.

Cardiff City had an impressive 2018 by getting promoted from the Championship under Neil Warnock.

The summer was highlighted by the impressive performances of the Welsh Women's teams against Bosnia & Russia, here manager Jayne Ludlow interacts with two young fans after naming the squad to face England in the group decider.
